No slowing down for Tech N9ne, no matter what age he is. Today, the Strange Music honcho turns 41.

It has been another successful year for the Kansas City rapper. On his birthday last year, he dropped his last album, Welcome to Strangeland. In the time since, he's released three EPs: Klusterfuk, E.B.A.H., and most recently Boiling Point. Plus, he embarked on a 99-day, 90-show tour earlier this year, signed rapper Rittz, and continued building his enthusiastic fanbase.

XXL would like to wish the independent heavyweight a happy 41st birthday.
